Hi,

Fast foods are in our database because a lot of people still eat those foods. Even though they may not be the type of healthy foods we support, we encourage members to track what they actually eat (good or bad). Even if what they are eating and tracking is not especially healthy, tracking the reality of what they are eating gives them a true picture of the nutrition info for their meals and hopefully will help some to improve their nutrition.

Thanks. I guess, too, I'm curious why SP allows this sort stuff on the site in the first place. It isn't food, it is chemicals, soda, sugar, fat and salt, mixed in pink slime :))

Although she didn't say this, I love the quote attributed to George Eliot:" It is never too late to be what you might have been."

Hi,

Sorry about that. I know sometimes, if your search parameters do not return any results, the system will include other foods (like the fast foods) so that you have some options to select from. Perhaps that is what is happening in this situation. If you keep seeing this happen (and do not believe it fits my explanation), it would help if you would provide a very specific example of exactly what you entered into the search field and then a couple examples of fast food that was included in the results. That way I can try to test it out. It could be that it is not recognizing some of the foods as being of the fast food variety.
